Tous-Ensemble! From Factory Occupations to the Streets!
Workers in Europe have come under increasing attack by their employers and the state. In France, workers have fought back, occupying their workplaces, sometimes holding the bosses hostage and taking to the streets in the millions this Fall to defend their rights to retirement. Small gains have been made, but the attacks continue. During these fights, workers began to forge links across industry and union lines to unite and generalize their struggles. Two participants in these struggles, one a CGT union militant at Renault Guyancourt, a technical center of 12,000 workers, the other a militant of the French left group, Fraction “Etincelle” of Lutte Ouvriere – will talk about their experiences and show short video clips of some of the struggles.
